Friday Face-Off · Various Things

Friday Face-Off 13th January 2017.


The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This weeks theme is: Clown “Nobody likes a clown at midnight and I have chosen:

It by Stephen King. 





Cover H:


I just really like the design on this cover, simple yet sinister. The graphic of the nose and mouth looks like it is drawn in crayon which adds to the overall effect.

Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??

Now, this is the last Face-Off post that I’m going to be doing for a while, it’s not actually ‘goodbye’ and more ‘see you around’ as I have the themes for the next 6 months and will still occasionally participate in the meme. It’s one of my favourites, seeing the various covers from around the world and for the older books, seeing how the cover aesthetics have changed over time. But, on the other-hand finding books that fit the weeks theme can be a nightmare at times to.

There’s still going to be other awesome bloggers out there that do the meme and I will look forward to seeing what books and covers they choose each week but for me, I’ve decided to step away for a while. One of the best bits about the meme is all the comments and seeing what covers you would all pick and while you won’t see the Face-Off for a while I hope you will still stick with my blog. 🙂

You may ask, if you’re not doing the Face-Off any more Drew, what are you going to do on a Friday? Well, the answer is, wait and see, depending on how much procrastinating I end up doing, I have an idea for a new feature that I will be doing each Friday and it should debut either next Friday or at the latest the Friday after and while it won’t be cover related I hope you will still check it out.

  1. My favourite is E. Balloons have such a big part of the story. The one with the mouth is a close 2nd for me.

    Curious about your new feature. Thinking of coing something myself. I have on Sunday that I am going to start. Need more.

  2. Oooooh… a new feature? Sounds interesting 🙂

    I was going to go for H as well! 🙂 I still haven’t read The Stand, even though I was planning to over xmas… meh… the book just looks so bloody daunting! 😀

  3. I met my match here…:) Sorry to lose you from the Friday Face-off team, but as you say – plenty of others can join in. Looking forward to see what your Friday blog will bring – I’m sure whatever it is, it will be readable and entertaining!

    1. Thanks, it’ll be cool to do something a bit different, whether or not it is well received remains to be seen, I think it’s a cool and simple idea though so we shall see. 🙂

      I shall still do the Face-Off on occasion, I have the themes and it will return. 🙂

    1. I’ll still be doing them on occasion, it just takes a lot of time to find books for the theme and I want to try something a bit different for a while.

      I’ve read about the new IT movie, should be really good though I haven’t read the book yet.😂

  4. Totally Agree with the choice of book for this weeks topic , I actually did comment on @sjhigbee ‘s Friday Face-off about Choosing “IT” (especially considering today being Friday the 13th and all )

    Meanwhile I do agree with your choice of cover , sadly I own the Cover “B” which doesn’t really look much 😦

  5. I also went with IT – I simply couldn’t think of another cover! I know what you mean about it being tough to find some covers – I hope you’ll still join in occasionally though.

    1. Oh I’ll still join in on occasion, I’ve got the themes, I just want to try my own thing, it may not do well, have to see but while I really like the face-off finding books for themes can be hard and hence why I’m taking a step away.😀


  6. Sounding off with “It”.. hmmmm good choice I think. I was growing a bit concerned when I saw you tackling some themes that had you looking at YA 😉 I will still look forward to these when you choose to participate though. I am not sure I follow anyone else who does this meme regularly. I love seeing the covers and being reminded that ours suck haha.

    Anyways, setting a record this week.. I “agree” with your choice here. But D and E hold pretty true to the story. I will never walk past a storm drain again without a hint of fear.

    1. Ha, trust me, I feel my own shame that I had to resort to using baby books for theme choices for a couple of weeks!😢

      There’s only 4 bloggers, including me that do the face-off each week, a couple do it on occasion to though.

      Lol, damn, it’s weird when people agree with me!😂

      1. Oooohhh… the suspense is killing me! I have a few that I want to initiate on a regular basis but with my “never known when I am going to be down and out” schedule, I am hesitant haha. I cannot wait to see what you have lined up 😉

  7. I went with cover B…possibly the lesser sinister option because I’d rather not be frightened while reaching for my book lol. Your fave def fits the bill for most sinister *covers eyes* lol can’t wait to see what new feature you’ve come up with 🙂

    1. Woohoo, sinister all the way!😂 Nothing groundbreaking and it’s probably done on other blogs to but I need a break from trying to find a book that fits the theme each week for the face-off, it’s easy if you know a book but if you don’t then it can take ages attempting to find one.

      1. God No! I know who ICP are, I’m a wrestling fan and know they used to be in WCW years back and the music channels occasionally play one of their songs, homies?? I think it is, I’m not a rap fan, I’m a rock and metal boy! 🙂
